I don't know for ODROID but for different ARM machines I usually create
(on the host) filesystem with debootstrap, compile u-boot and kernel,
flash u-boot to card, copy created filesystem and kernel/modules to card,
tweak all that a bit and boot.
That way I have four different ARM machines/system (TF101, BananaPi,
Lamobo RP1, Samsung Chromebook) with Debian on them.
